->''"It’s worth noting here how downright thuggish Bond over the course of the movie. He threatens the gun-maker for information, warning him that the gun “[[GroinAttack directly at your groin]]” – even Mulder in ''Series/TheXFiles'' has a more sophisticated way of making that particular threat. Similarly, Moore’s Bond is incredibly brutal in interrogating Scaramanga’s lady friend, pinning her by her arm and pressing her for information. “I’ll break it unless you tell me where those bullets go,” he warns her, before smacking her around a bit. Then walks in with champagne and two glasses… there’s a classy fellow. During the movie’s big boat chase, he tosses a kid off his boat -- after the kid had fixed the engine for him."''

To top off this glorious example of retarded middle management Jack declares that [[DesignatedHero he cannot stop this threat]] and publicly humiliates Owen in front of all of his colleagues.

They have basically come to the same conclusion as me, that he is a terrible boss and needs to be put down like Old Yeller. When he can’t get his own way he [[TakingYouWithMe pulls a gun on his staff and threatens to murder them all]] and starts dissecting all their personality faults.

->''"Even [[Creator/PatrickTroughton Troughton]] seems to be fed up with the story. At one point he's forced to argue that the problem the Dulcians are having with the Dominators is that they're not realizing that the Dominators are completely alien... The Dulcian points out that [[BoomerangBigot the Doctor is an alien too]]. Now, in the episode Troughton responds laughing and saying 'you got me there.' But fire up the episode and listen to his delivery. It's an incredibly fast response -- the only moment I've ever seen Troughton flagrantly step on someone's dialogue. What I'm implying here is that the line sounds improvised -- like Troughton [[HypocrisyNod snuck it in]] because he was horrified at his own dialogue and desperate to undercut the idea that the Doctor could be such a xenophobic prick."''

It was the ’70s, so maybe drugs were involved. I’m not gonna judge!

->''"They’ve ->They’ve taken a charming, roguish character from ''Doctor Who'' and turned him into an arrogant, one dimensional bully. I’d hardly say that is a step in the right direction.... Rule one – when the shit hits the fan you need to try and whip your team into as effective a unit as possible to deal with the crisis and not [[BreakingSpeech prey on their insecurities]] and [[TheNeidermeyer start pointing the finger]]. To top off this glorious example of retarded middle management Jack declares that he cannot stop this threat and publicly humiliates Owen in front of all of his colleagues. Is Jack going for the ‘boss of the year’ award? ...All the in-fighting comes to a head when the Mickey Mouse Torchwood team are sick of Jack standing around posturing impotently and decide to take matters into their own hands. They have basically come to the same conclusion as me, that he is a terrible boss and needs to be put down like Old Yeller. When he can’t get his own way he [[TakingYouWithMe pulls a gun on his staff and threatens to murder them all]] and starts dissecting all their personality faults. As you do."''
